Now It’s Racist to Notice That Obama Is a Socialist

By any reasonable definition of the term, Barack Obama is a socialist. He has adopted three father figures that served as mentors in the course of his life: Frank Marshall Davis[1], a member of the Soviet-financed Communist Party USA; Jeremiah Wright, a proponent of a race-based form of Marxism called Black Liberation Theology[2]; and William Ayers[3], an unrepentant Maoist terrorist. So it should be no surprise that Obama’s economy policy can be summed up by the term “smash and grab.” He told ABC’s Charles Gibson that he would raise capital gains taxes even if it hurt the economy so much that it would lower revenue[4], because the primary point of taxes is not to fund the government, but to inflict “fairness” on capitalists. He told Joe the Plumber that his dream of business ownership would have to be sacrificed so that The One could “spread the wealth around[5].”

Since most Americans are aware that socialism is not only misguided but evil — a form of systemized theft that punishes work and initiative while rewarding sloth and dependency, reducing the productive to government slaves and everyone else to farm animals bred for their votes — the fact that Obama is a socialist stands among the most compelling reasons to resist the left-wing media’s push to install him in power. So on behalf of that very media, Lewis Diuguid of the Kansas City Star has declared that drawing attention to Obama being a socialist is racist[6]:

The “socialist” label that Sen. John McCain and his GOP presidential running mate Sarah Palin are trying to attach to Sen. Barack Obama actually has long and very ugly historical roots.

J. Edgar Hoover, director of the FBI from 1924 to 1972, used the term liberally to describe African Americans who spent their lives fighting for equality.

Here Diuguid actually gives as an example W.E.B. Du Bois[7], another member of the Communist Party who avidly supported the Soviet Union. Then he concludes:

McCain and Palin have simply reached back in history to use an old code word for black. It set whites apart from those deemed unAmerican and those who could not be trusted during the communism scare.

Shame on McCain and Palin.

For that matter, shame on anyone who resists Obamunism in any way. Counterrevolutionaries, I mean racists, must not be tolerated. If Obamunists take power, they won’t be.
